School of Design Urges Revision Of Arch Sci Dept.

A special committee of the Graduate School of Design will soon ask the Committee on Educational Policy to reorganize visual education at Harvard.

The Department of Architectural Sciences and the Visual Studies program may be combined into a new Department of Visual and Environmental Studies if the CEP follows recommendations which are now being prepared by the Design School's Committee on Architectural Sciences.

One committee member, Albert Szabo, associate professor of Architecture, explained the coming reforms this week in an article which appears on page four of today's CRIMSON Supplement. The committee will probably recommend that:

* all instruction in the new department be given in the Carpenter Center.

* The Faculty of Arts and Sciences take over full financial responsibility for the new department.


* the University offer more studio courses to the student interested in architecture as a career.
